Charlie Lynch is no stranger to big bucks. The welder from Mt. Hope in Lawrence County took a 15-point non-typical from the Bankhead National Forest last season that scored 178 points. But it was an 8-point he took on Thanksgiving morning this season that will forever redefine his idea of what a big buck is.
Its rack was a good one, but it was the buck’s body that had everyone talking. This was a hoss. It bottomed out the scales at 250 pounds, and Charlie and a lot of others believe it was 300-pounds-plus.
